Vale John William Bartholomew

By Prof. John Sheehan AM

The Board of Desane Group Holdings Limited is saddened to announce that our past long-serving Company Secretary/Director, John Bartholomew, passed away peacefully on 7 December 2021, after a protracted illness.

John served as Chief Financial Officer and Company Secretary from 1989 to 2015 and as a non-executive Director from 2010 to 2019.  John’s professional expertise and wise counsel was a crucial component of the investment program of Desane Group Holdings Limited and its controlled entities during his incumbency.

The Directors and staff wish to express our sincere condolences to John’s wife, Judith, his daughters Kylie and Karen, and to his grandchildren.  He will be sorely missed.
